I just couldn’t resist Tabata Something Else. Jeff was kind enough to coach the 8:30 session so that I could do so. I kept a little in the tank for Barbell Club.
Tabata Something Else (AMRAP – Reps)
Complete 32 intervals of 20 seconds of work followed by ten seconds of rest where the first 8 intervals are pull-ups, the second 8 are push-ups, the third 8 intervals are sit-ups, and finally, the last 8 intervals are squats.
There is no rest between exercises.
Post total reps from all 32 intervals.
I completed 45 ring pull-ups, 93 ring pushups, 100 weighted squats (45#), and 58 GHD sit-ups. I ended with sit-ups instead of squats to allow others to complete workout in order. I didn’t count 5 ring pull-ups as, you know, the reps didn’t count. Full range of motion, folks. Ring pushups went swimmingly, and I completed 15 the first round and no less than 11 any round. I feared that weighted squats would be taxing, as my quads are still somewhat sore from “Jenny.” Doing squats was good for the soul — and the quads — and I completed no less than a dozen a round. Ending with GHD sit-ups was challenging on the hamstrings. Nope, not the abs. Yup, the hamstrings.
Total = 296 reps
